Panasonic HDMI surround system problem

Hi - just wondering as to whether anyone can help me. Just purchased a SC-PT350 - 5.1 Wireless Home Cinema System. Working fine when playing DVDs etc but how do I get it working just on TV only? Have tried selecting surround sound on tv option but then no sound at all? Connected via HDMI cable only - do I also need to connect audi cables to get ot working? I have a pansonic plasma which should be compatible? please help!!

Re: Panasonic HDMI surround system problem

The HDMI cable connection on your system is a video out to your TV.
To get audio from the TV so you can hear it through the system, you need to add a cable from the audio out of your TV to the "aux" input on the panasonic system.
This is most likely a red and white connection which will give you stereo, or pro-logic surround from the home theater system.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660

as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.

No sound through the Panasonic cinema surround sound on TV

Had a similar problem mate. I solved it by connecting the tv to the PT460 system with a scart lead. You then have to have the AV channel selected on the PT460 system to listen to the tv. You will always have to have the AV channel on the PT460 selected to listen to any sound transmitted through the tv - be it playstation/xbox or any other device that you may connect in the future with HDMI leads or otherwise. Hope this helps

Panasonic multi connections

HDMI audio in this setup is a one way street. Audio will not come back from the TV to the audio system.
Sorry as you have not shown the model number I can not advise on the system fully.
However, it is standard on the current Panasonics to use Optical audio as a return feed or phonos.
Optical would be best as it carries full digital surround, whilst the phonos only carry "surround"
It may help for you to look a the new Panasonic web sit as there is now an interactive "How to connect your system"
